    Craftsmen

    Even though you are not important physically, you are important! You may not be strong but you can craft weapons to help out people. However, you may not specialize in that. You may specialize in silversmith, tailor, and much more. You're type of people were usually headstrong and have excellent hand-eye coordination.

    You were the town clown. You get paid for what you do best, making people laugh. Jokers usually entertain the king and get paid well. It would be a fun job.



    well, I'm not sure how it lead from my answers to this result, but I have to agree it would be a fun job At least it's safely away from all the sharp pointy things

    Ok, tried to be honest and almost as expected and well-deserved for my laziness...

    Peasant

    Ah yes, the lowest class in all of the midevel times, you were also known as serfs, which is short for servants. You were paid very low and worked around peoples farms and homes helping them do day to day chores. However, do not worry because you were over half the population back then.


    I think when I chose "don't do anything until someone tells you to", I was doomed.

    Huh, that's what being clever nets you it seems. Apparently nobody told the makers of the quiz Medieval noblemen were by default also the warrior elite though...

    Militia
    "Militia, militia, militia. You are a great help to the kingdom you lived in. Militia members were volunentary members of the kingdom who helped defend their village when it was under siege. You have a great hard and have courage of steel."

    Not quite as high in society as I was aiming for, but I suppose that it would have paid the bills and provided me with enough food to live on. Presumably better than most!

    All brawn and no brains. You are one tough sucker, you can take down people twice your size and defend off some of the greatest foes. Knights work for kings, aiding him when he is at need.

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    So we have lots of kings, a bunch of nobles, and was it one knight? And two militiamen. A handful of others.
    We have this almost mythical tree, given to us by the otherwise hostile people in the east to symbolize our friendship and give us permission to send caravans through their lands. It could be said to symbolize the wealth and power of our great nation. Cut it down and make me a throne.

    Rangers are very modest people. Some people say they worked for the king, some didnt. They are great at long ranged combat, their bow and thrown daggars are their best friends. You also know some melee attacks as well =)

    Fantastic...hiking, checking things out, running away if danger comes close....
